Are you wondering about your area rugs and if they need specialty cleaning? It’s not always obvious how to clean this kind of flooring. They’re too big for the washer, but are they too little for professional cleaning? Here are some tips for dealing with area rugs:
Area rugs are a great way to accessorize your home, create warmth, and add defined spaces to rooms. Because they get the same use and traffic as your other flooring, and sometimes more, it's important to care for them. Vacuuming is essential. If dirt is left on the rugs, it can get ground in, damaging the fibers and shortening the life of the rug.
If you have spills or spots, make sure you treat them as soon as possible. Spot cleaning is an excellent way to help avoid stains on the rugs. Use a gentle cleaner and a soft, white cloth to help blot up spills and dirt.
A professional carpet cleaner with experience will not come in and treat your area rugs the same way they treat your carpet. They will evaluate and inspect the rug to help them determine the material and any special needs or treatments. Then they will clean your rugs using gentle products and the appropriate technique to make sure they are as clean as the rest of your home and the rest of your flooring.
Just because area rugs are small doesn’t mean they don’t need TLC. Getting the right treatment can help them look good and last longer. For your specialty cleaning needs, including your area rugs, make an appointment with our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaning.
